Lugnuts trail behind in series with Whitecaps

LANSING - After splitting the first half of a four-game series with the West Michigan Whitecaps in Grand Rapids this weekend, the Lansing Lugnuts dropped the third game of the series 4-2 Sunday at Oldsmobile Park. The Whitecaps (26-28) shut out the Lugnuts (22-35) 10-0 Friday, while Lansing won 6-3 Saturday after it overcame a two-run deficit in the eighth inning. West Michigan didn’t waste any time getting those two runs back Sunday - taking a 2-0 lead in the top of the first inning. Lansing hitting coach Mike Micucci said the Lugnuts were not prepared to play and were unable to recover from the runs scored in the first inning. “Sometimes all it takes is one inning and today that’s what happened in the first couple innings,” Micucci said. “It took us a couple of innings to get into the game, and we couldn’t make up the difference.” In the top of the fourth inning, the Lugnuts cut into the Whitecaps’ four-run lead with two runs of their own, when first baseman Blair Barbier (1-for-4) loaded the bases on an infield single, extending his hitting streak to 13 games.
